Judge Confirmed in Reduced Ireland Squad for Portugal Camp
Monday, 20th May 2019 15:44
Blues midfielder Alan Judge had been confirmed in the Republic of Ireland squad travelling to Portugal for a training camp tomorrow, manager Mick McCarthy having reduced the party to 27 from the provisional list of 30.
The week-long get-together at the Quinta Do Lago complex in the Algarve is ahead of Euro 2020 qualifiers against Denmark, in Copenhagen on Friday 7th June, and Gibraltar, in Dublin three days later.
Judge, 30, has previously won five full caps and has scored one international goal.
Former Blues striker David McGoldrick and ex-Town midfielder Conor Hourihane are also in McCarthy’s squad, although the Aston Villa man is one of four players who will join up with the party following the Portugal trip due to his involvement in the Championship play-offs.
Town director of football Dave Bowman now works part-time as a member of McCarthy’s Ireland staff, while Andy Liddell, who left his role as the Blues’ fitness coach last summer, is also part of the Ireland backroom team.
Republic of Ireland: Darren Randolph (Middlesbrough), Mark Travers (Bournemouth), Sean McDermott (Kristiansund BK), Seamus Coleman (Everton), Matt Doherty (Wolverhampton Wanderers), John Egan (Sheffield United), Kevin Long (Burnley), Richard Keogh (Derby County), Shane Duffy (Brighton & Hove Albion), Enda Stevens (Sheffield United), Greg Cunningham (Cardiff City), Alan Judge (Ipswich Town), Alan Browne (Preston North End), Glenn Whelan (Aston Villa), Jeff Hendrick (Burnley), Conor Hourihane (Aston Villa), Luca Connell (Bolton Wanderers), Josh Cullen (Charlton Athletic on loan from West Ham), Robbie Brady (Burnley), Callum O'Dowda (Bristol City), James McClean (Stoke City), Ronan Curtis (Portsmouth), David McGoldrick (Sheffield United), Shane Long (Southampton), Sean Maguire (Preston North End), Scott Hogan (Aston Villa), Callum Robinson (Preston North End).

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
